I'm trying to set up ssh access to a Windows 2003 server. I am having a
problem in that when I ssh to this server it immediately exits and I
find the following in /var/log/sshd.log:
5 [main] sshd 12912 C:\Cygwin\usr\sbin\sshd.exe: *** fatal error -
could not load ws2_32, Win32 error 0
Forgive me I did do some research about setting up ssh on a 2003 server
and I believe I've very close to having it set up correctly but I'm
still missing something. I created a local sshd_server user and added
things like "Act as part of the operating system", "Replace process
level token", etc. I did not see a setting for "Increase quota". Note
that I am using a local sshd_server users (i.e. <machine>\sshd_server)
as the logon for the sshd service. I don't believe I'm using privilege
I had to use mmc and a Group Policy editor for the domain to add this
local user into the rights at the domain level before this would work.
Still when I try to ssh in I get a password prompt but after that the
above gets written into the sshd.log and the prompt returns.
Note that I also use this local sshd_server user for inetd so that rsh
can and does work. Insecure I know and I'd like to switch this client
over to using all ssh but I gotta get it working for them.
Thanks in advance.
Why not use ssh-host-config to set up sshd? It will create sshd_server for
you in the proper way.
